Reviews of Anti-spyware - Software is a Modern Necessity!

By: sebastian foss

Spyware is an insidious threat. It'll watch what you read and what you do - and worst of all, it's almost impossible to remove without damaging your computer! But what one person can create, another person can remove.

We've tested dozens - even hundreds! - of spyware removal programs. Some of them are great, most of them get the job done (more or less), and too many simply don't work. We've gathered the top contenders in the field, and reviewed them here for your convenience!

Alert Spy popular

Fast. That's the impression that we came away with. Everything was fast - download, install, updating the software, even the actual process of scanning the PC went quickly, to say nothing of removing the spyware applications. This application was clearly streamlined to work very quickly, so that you can go back to your work with a minimum of fuss. In order to make things easier, you can even schedule the program to run searches every night, or every week - whenever you know you won't be using the computer. If you're looking for a program to stay out of your hair, this is the one to choose

Pest Bot popular

Pestbot is great. In addition to removing spyware, it targets and deletes adware. That said, this program could use some polish. It works quickly and efficiently, removing every trace of spyware and adware on our testbed computer, but the interface is a bit clunky. The update button is hidden away in the Tools menu, rather than out in front - fortunately, it asks you on loading whether or not you want to update. If the interface isnt such a big deal, go ahead and give it a try.

Pest Protector

Contrary to the name of the product, it doesn't actually protect pests. What it does is protect you from pests, and it does it with ease. The first impression we got was when it loaded up and asked us, right off the bat, if we wanted to update the database. Needless to say, we found that to be a very nice touch. After updating, it automatically scanned for any potential spyware or adware and removed every item. PestProtector works great - fast, easy, and powerful

Spy Destroy

The navigation of the website aside, Spy Destroy is actually pretty good at what it does. We were a bit surprised, since the interface is fairly raw - novice computer owners may feel a bit intimidated by the look of the program. Not to say that it's difficult to understand, because a lot of care has clearly been taken to make the process as quick and easy as possible. In other words, Spy Destroy is a decent product if youre not too picky about what it looks like

Spyware Removal

Spyware Remover lives up to it's name. While we we're running our tests, it updated itself and removed spyware fairly quickly. We don't have any quibbles with this program - it does what it sets out to do, without fanfare or applause. Spyware Removers been streamlined so much that using it is a snap. Give it a whirl, since it comes with a free scan ...visit
